Treasury's Mnuchin says Trump backs Fed independence
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says President Donald Trump, despite comments this week expressing opposition to monetary-policy tightening by the Federal Reserve, supports the U.S. central bank's independence. "I fully support the Fed's independence, as does the president," Mnuchin reportedly said on the sidelines of a G20 meeting of finance ministers and central bankers in Buenos Aires. Trump broke with long-standing precedent this week by saying he was "not happy" with recent interest-rate increases. He later said he "couldn't care less" about concerns that his comments could imperil the Fed's independence from politics because his views on interest rates have not changed since his days as a businessman. He harshly criticized former Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen for, he said at the time, maintaining low target lending rates for the political benefit of then-President Barack Obama.
